Fine dining was taken to another level when Eleven Madison Park opened on 24thStreet and Madison Avenue in 1998. Currently under the direction of Chef Daniel Humm, the restaurant boasts a Dining Room 8-10 course tasting menu ($315) and a five-course tasting menu ($175) in the bar. Some dishes feature communal elements for sharing. All seasonal tasting menus draw inspiration from local culture, history, and ingredients.
To top it off, the modern dining room overlooks the spectacular Madison Square Park, one of the most beautiful in New York. With perfect views and an impressive menu, as well as a fantastic bar that serves lighter fare, Eleven Madison Park is superb to celebrate special occasions or to simply treat yourself to a little bit of extravagance for no reason at all. Note that reservations must be paid in advance.
